Re: MIMA!!!

Thank you for the link to that fantastic footage

I adored Mima, she had a cute game and always seemed to be the underdog (partly because she was so short I guess). I remember reading in the World of Tennis Annual that she had a knee injury at Roland Garros 1977 and decided to rally from the backcourt and let her opponents make mistakes. She was the only world class player in Paris that year and deserved her victory

Re: MIMA!!!

Like the earlier poster I always remember going to Eastbourne and she was always happy to sign autographs.

I loved her partnership with Virginia Ruzici, one of my favourite doubles teams at the time.

Always loved her, never forgave her for beating Jo Durie in the French Open semis, but that only lasted for that week

Re: MIMA!!!

Home Tribute For Mima
Roland Garros winner inducted
to Slovenian Hall of Fame


Congratulations to Mima Jausovec, who was recently enshrined in the Slovenian Athletes Hall of Fame, which was established by the Society of Slovenian Sports Journalists in 2011. Jausovec was, of course, French Open champion in 1977 and runner-up in 1978 and 1983, when she lost to Chris Evert. And, while many of today’s top players hail from Central and Eastern Europe, Jausovec was a trailblazer for the region.

“In the past years when I played under Yugoslavia, tennis was not the most popular sport and I was really the only woman tennis player from the country traveling around until Monica Seles came along,” she notes. “There were a few men, such as Nikola Pilic and Zeljko Franulovic. Still, I was twice athlete of the year in Yugoslavia. “I come from a town called Maribor, which is very close to the Austrian border. Tennis was always big — they played most of the Davis Cup ties there and most of the successful women's tennis players from the past came from the area. But in 1991, we separated from Yugoslavia and became the country of Slovenia.”

After her tour days ended,
Jausovec was Fed Cup captain for Yugoslavia and then from 1991 for Slovenia. In 1992 she opened a tennis club in Maribor, which she still runs along with her brother Zoran, who was her coach on the tour. She has also been a member of the Slovenian Olympic Committee and last year was the coach for Slovenia’s tennis team at the London 2012 Olympic Games. “That was a great experience, being among the best athletes, living in the Olympic village and watching different sports,” she recalls.

Jausovec proudly reports that her son, Tim, born in 1991, is now a junior at Stanford University. “After I visited the new WTA office in St. Petersburg recently, I went to visit him at Stanford, where they had parent's weekend.
“I also met with my old friends from tennis who also graduated from Stanford, Barbara Jordan and her sister Kathy Jordan, with whom I used to play doubles.
We had lunch
together and remembered the nice times we've shared on the tour.”

Jausovec, who was
involved in the former WTA event in Portoroz, Slovenia for six years, added: “I love to be connected to tennis, so I will try to put a new tournament together in the future. Meantime, I love to visit events like Miami and I go to the French Open every year, where I connect with my best friend Virginia Ruzici, who lives there with her family. Her daughter Caroline and my son Tim are very good friends too. As you can see, my life is still around tennis, which I love!”

Re: MIMA!!!

Honestly I found her quite boring, basically she was just a much much much worse version of Chris Evert's game, but it was still great for such a small country to have a player of her caliber.
